With one short and simple tweet, Tiger Woods announced his intentions to return and play at The Masters next week. It would end his nine week absence from the game, but most people are giving him little shot of evening making the cut, let alone being a threat to win.


On Feb. 11, Woods announced he would be taking time away to work on his game because, “My play, and scores, are not acceptable for tournament golf. Like I’ve said, I enter a tournament to compete at the highest level, and when I think I’m ready I’ll be back.”

Woods, 39, a four-time winner of the tournament, had been questionable for the year’s first major championship ever since announcing a leave from the game on Feb. 11 to work on his issues in his game.

He entered just two tournaments this year and played only 47 holes, missing the cut at the Waste Management Phoenix Open in January and then making it through just 11 holes of the Farmers Insurance Open a week later, citing a stiff lower back.

I personally am not a fan of golf but everyone can admit that when Tiger is out there playing it is better for the sport because it makes a casual fan take notice, not too mention after all this time and everything he has been through, people want to see Tiger win. That is except for other golfers of course.
